Publisher's Summary

Brought to you by Penguin. T

his Penguin Classic is performed by Simon Harrison, best known for his roles in Everest, Transformers: The Last Knight, and London Has Fallen. This definitive edition includes an introduction by Philip Horne.   

When Isabel Archer, a beautiful, spirited American, is brought to Europe by her wealthy aunt Touchett, it is expected that she will soon marry. But Isabel, resolved to enjoy her freedom, does not hesitate to turn down two eligible suitors. Then she finds herself irresistibly drawn to Gilbert Osmond. Charming and cultivated, Osmond sees Isabel as a rich prize waiting to be taken. 

In this portrait of a 'young woman affronting her destiny', Henry James created one of his most magnificent heroines, and a story of intense poignancy.
